Mission acoomplished. Flying spaghetti monster overruns HAF board! Smilies turn into monsters when you type the sequence "happysmilies":

Monsters detach from post and follow the mouse when you click them:

You can't see the mouse though because it wasn't taken as part of the screenshot.

I did it with this Greasemonkey script.

If you don't know how to work Greasemonkey, there's a simpler demo here.

Hmm.  I was able to get your easter egg to work in Chrome on your test page, but not here.  Maybe I'm doing something wrong. :hmm:

It uses Greasemonkey so you would need to use Firefox. Then install the Greasemonkey addon. Then install this Greasemonkey script. Then it should work. Hopefully Chrome will support Greasemonkey soon. I prefer Chrome as a browser.

Here's your post with a flying spaghetti monster :).

Here meaning the forum?  That's because I haven't included the code yet.

I think it's important that the easter egg doesn't get in the way of funcionality of the forum. If it did, I would get annoyed reeeaaally quickly.
...don't hurt me.  :eek2:

It won't get in the way, because you're not likely to type "happysmilies" in going about your business.  Besides, it's not an easter egg if it's blatant and always in your face.   ;)
